Adjust tracking go on go video vr3930


Tracking will only adjust on the VCR and may only be on the original remote.

Note that if there is tape debris or black residue on posts and guides or even video head drum tracking will not adjust--any debris will cause tape to move away from the drum resulting in a tracking like issue---tape cleaners rarely resolve this.

I HAVE A TOSHIBA VCR/DVD COMBINATION MACINE. THERE IS NO TRACKING BUTTON. iS THERE A WAY TO AUTOMATICALLY ADJUST THE TRACKING??


Usually VCRs do not offer specifically labelled tracking buttons as such, however they may incorporate tracking into their channel UP/DOWN buttons, both on the front of the main unit and/or remote. Some brands also offer V-LOCK (vertical lock or still image adjustment) (in pause mode during playback) to stabilise the image, reducing vertical jitter, which again can be adjusted as required using the same buttons as used for tracking. In most cases, pressing both CH UP and CH DOWN together while the tape is playing should centre track (revert back to auto tracking) the unit.

I am sure if your VCR has channel buttons on it, try pressing either one while a tape is playing. See if it affects the tracking at all. If it does, press both buttons together for 5 seconds or so, then release - auto/centre tracking takes over.

It costs nothing to try this, and it won't hurt your machine or your tapes.

Can't play a tape back. Shows ''Trac'' as problem but no idea how to fix it


"Trac" means tracking. If adjusting the tracking controls doesn't solve the problem, you might need to clean the tape heads with Servisol Video 40. Clean the smaller heads first, then the drum and head.
You can get Servisol from most electronics shops.

Tracking seems off


I have had the same problem. There is no way to manually adjust the tracking on this Hitachi, or on most 8mm cameras, for that matter. I copied all of my more recent tapes to DVD first (2 copies of each) and then I went to the oldest tapes, which for some reason were OK. When I got to one tape that gave me trouble, I just let it play in the camcorder for about an hour. It adjusted its own tracking so that the picture was OK. Then, I rewound the tape and copied that one. I still have 2 tapes that will not adjust. I am going to send those out to a copying service. I hope they can adjust the tracking and make the copies I need.
By the way, I used this camera and a Panasonic DMR-E55 to make the DVD copies.

Tracking


Does this happen on ALL tapes?

Depending on WHICH model VCR you have (old or new) SOME have a switch which will allow you to adjust tracking MANUALLY. When the switch is in the manual position, it won't track automatically. If some played with that switch, that could cause your problem.

ALSO, do you have a cleaning tape? If the control track head is dirty, it won't see the "control track" (which gives you VCR information to control the tracking.

Another possibility is one of the video heads (there's 2 or 4) is dirty, and without ENOUGH video signal coming off the heads, it's not possible to track properly.

Try running a cleaning tape through. If you've never done it, it might be time. Unless yu know about equipment I'd wouldn't suggest you open the machine and clean it yourself. Let me know how you make out.

It's not tracking -- it's dirty heads -- you can purchase an 8mm head cleaning cassette and use it to cure these problems. Tapes recorded with the dirty heads may still have issues afterwards.

Old Betamax Sony SL2300 Possible Tracking problems


A common problem with this model and others is the tracking pot itself fails. Wiper in pot breaks loose. Test if the tracking control has any effect?? If not, pot is bad.

Other causes are dirty heads and tape path but, the tracking control should always have some effect on PB pic. Bad video head, tape guides loose( tape not tracking on video head correctly), guide pin problem on loading ring, slack brake problem, etc.
